    Is there a way, as a normal member or wiki administrator, to see site traffic statistics for a particular wiki?

     We had a feature for this, but some changes to Google Analytics caused it to break and it was removed. It is on our roadmap to fix and re-release it, but it is not currently available.

    Hello! I've been trying to figure out: is there a gamepedia API? I'd really like to make my own personal app for a couple of the smaller wiki's I frequent

     There is no API other than the MediaWiki API. We generally discourage people from making their own apps using Gamepedia content, but if you do, you must respect the license associated with the wiki, most typically CC-BY-NC-SA 3.0 which prohibits any commercial use (e.g. paid apps, advertising on Gamepedia content)

    posted a message on Automating page edits

    Hey there!

     

    So far I don't think we've gotten a request about moving this proiect (The Aether II) -- Once we've gotten that, we can look at the best ways to move the content over to Gamepedia. We have some processes we've developed for it, so its unlikely that you'd have to manually copy it over. More likely we'd just ask for you to help check it over and perhaps re-format some stuff as needed to work with Gampedia's skin/extensions/etc.

     

    You can tell the developers to either put in a request via http://gamepedia.com/wikiconnect or just email me directly at [email protected]

    Anyone else super excited for Civ 6 to release next Friday? I've been pouring over the Civ 6 wiki trying to learn more about the new mechanics and leader abilities so I can decide what to play first.

    posted a message on My Wiki is not activated!

    Hey there, from what I see I replied to all requests that came in recently using the e-mails that were submitted.

     

    For wiki translations, we ask that users first translate the Main Page and a few other major pages. You can learn more on the Translation Guideline page of the Help Wiki

     

    Translating these pages first helps us to be sure that you're committed to translating the wiki and then we can look into creating a separate domain for the project.

    Quote from DSquirrelGM >>

     Thanks for the clarification anyway, I didn't see any image uploads or articles about it on the help wiki, and noone uploaded it to the wiki I was editing on - wasn't sure where it came from.

     There was a Global Site Notice about it, we figured most people would see that. Free subscriptions are being provided to active editors, starting with folks with at least 5k wiki points.

    posted a message on Spambot wiki account creation questions

    Typically a 2-week ban on an IP is sufficient. If they do come back you extend it to 2-3 months. The problem with indefinite IP bans is that in todays world of dynamic addressing, they often end up preventing legit users down the road.

    posted a message on Spambot wiki account creation questions
    Quote from Bludwyng >>

    I am an Admin on the Runes of Magic wiki. I am seeing a LOT of what are obviously bot-created new user accounts in the last week or so. Isn't there a Captcha on new user creation? How are the bots getting past that? I have been blocking only the absolutely obvious bots, with names like ABCNameName, but I am seeing many in the form FirstLast, FirstLastNumber, and FirstNumber. SO far I have left those alone but we are getting 3-8 of those a day. Should we just start blocking them?

     Generally we don't really block them until they start causing problems. A lot of times the new accounts are created but never used, or they're trying to use them and being blocked by the filters. ghhghgh is also correct in that we prefer folks not to give IP addresses indefinite bans. Accounts that are definitely spam can be blocked indefinitely though.

    Quote from ghhghgh >>

    If you sign into a wiki with the same credentials then the name should be the same.

    Yup, your entry in the local user table will update when you log in to any/each wiki.

    Quote from kaziekama >>

    how do I go about renaming my account? I renamed my account on curse.com thanks to the help of the staff, but the changes did not reflect here.

     

    if this is he wrong area for this sort of question, I apologize.

     Hey there. We have a nickname system in place on Gamepedia.com that allows a different name to be shown here (e.g. on the Forums) from your actual account name. I've removed your nickname, so now your new username should be reflected.

    I'm AHACS the developer of a pre-alpha game name Summoned. I just sent the suggestion for a wiki but what are the reasons for Curse to not accept my suggestion. Please tell me the reason why they might not accept it.

    Thanks peeps!

    posted a message on Something Wrong with Wiki Layout, Need help

    I'm guessing you use adblock? One of the unintended side effects of the upgrade is that the MREC ad still "takes up space" for users with Adblockers. Unfortunately, its not high on our priority list since it only affects those users....
